I have come to discovery that being a leader, you will encounter different situations, whether good or bad and it is up to you as the leader to make the right decision. No two people are the same so what you do in one situation will not always work in another. In different scenarios, I believe I was able to use good judgment in order to decide the best course of action needed for a situation. For instance, an NCO may need to counsel their soldier for disobeying a direct order, but if the counseling is too late or too early, too harsh or too weak, then the results may prove ineffective. I strongly believe, that a person can lead through communication.
In decision making one needs to have earned trust so the decision itself can be relied on. If you cannot rely on someone you cannot trust him. Making bad decisions can make people stop trusting you. Respect Respect is something my father has mostly thought me. I am brought up in a way that you should tread people the way you want to be treated.
We have found ourselves at times to be guilty of the negatives that come with functional organization. We’ve spent so much time focusing on our particular function, that it’s harder for us to understand the goals of our co-worker’s functions, and would just write them off as not being a qualified employee because they don’t understand our particular function at work. This can help us take a step back and further analyze our organization’s structure and what we can do differently to help understand it better and contribute better to the organization’s overall
B. Be goal oriented. V. In conclusion, because most people struggle to have a detailed plan in order to reach their goal and succeed they fail. People who fail usually have a hard time accepting responsibility for their own shortcomings and actions, which is what ultimately led to their failure. In order to be personally responsible people need to learn to choose the hard right over the easy wrong.
In order to become a great leader, you need to be a follower first. Here are the three reasons why a leader should be a follower first: Better understanding of the plight of subordinates A leader who came from the ranks usually knows and understands the plight of his or her underlings. You won't only be able to empathize with your teammates, but you will also know the tricks under their sleeves. You will know when to show compassion and when to be strict. It is a known fact that employees or followers have tendencies to procrastinate, look for ways to make their jobs easier even if the quality isn't good, and try to steal company resources, such as time and supplies.
Learning from these mistakes, SHC spent considerable time and effort forming a selection team and gaining consensus for its new EMR system, which resulted in Epic as a clear winner. SHC has successfully involved stakeholders in the selection and implementation strategy; nevertheless, SHC leadership must keep in mind that many people within the organization may be wary of a new system given the frustration that was caused by the implementation of Carecast. The major factors that negatively affect EMR system implementation have to do with people – a lack of strong leadership and effective governance, along with suboptimal change readiness and stakeholder involvement. Inasmuch, SHC leadership must show a long-term commitment to transformation and implementation of the Epic system. Although it is not as common to start implementation with the front office, beginning a rollout with clinical applications would send a positive message to physicians that the new system was integral to the organizations core strategy rather than just an administrative exercise.
The decision to survive is often determined by what that person thinks of themselves and the world around them at that time. In the readings assigned to this course I have seen stark differences between those that survived and those that did not survive. People like Parrado and Ralston see that there are reasons beyond merely themselves to survive. Then there are people like McCandless and Reuss who have turned their backs on the civilized world because they have become disillusioned with the world in general. McCandless and Reuss were not comfortable in the world that valued the obtainment of material things and the completion of specific accomplishments.
These issues cause many rifts in a successful society and workplace and often prevent goals of the organization and the teams within from accomplishing their goals and achieving their missions. Most importantly, leaders must be aware of these challenges in order to rise above them and lead successful teams, while also reaping the many benefits that diversity provides.

Leaders who use these powers must understand they come with strengths as well as weaknesses, for example in my opinion those leaders who use coercive power to influence by fear don’t really earn their subordinates and peers respect and true loyalty and sooner or later will fail. Leaders who are subject matter expert frequently inspire the respect, trust and loyalty of subordinates, peers and superior alike. Rewarding power could be both bad and good as it rewards deserving people and sometimes will reward the not so deserving ones creating conflict in the organization. Charisma power might lead those who like the leader, but the leader may not be knowledgeable or skill enough to make the right decisions and finally referent power could empower those with the resources and personal traits but once the resources run out, the leader may not be
Dose that one instance constitute him losing everything he has worked his entire life for? The simple answer is yes. However, there are a multitude of tough problems that you must weigh in your decision.
